Students should discuss potential focus areas with their assigned academic advisor.

AS students who plan to transfer to a four-year university may select an Academic Pathway to identify the program or field that the student wishes to pursue upon transfer. Selecting an Academic Pathway enables students to be assigned an academic advisor with expertise in the student's transfer area. To update an Academic pathway, students may submit a Program Change Form to the Records Office.
